When Snuggies are outlawed, only outlaws will have Snuggies.

A Newton New Jersey teen, one Brandon Ryzner-Meredith, was helping a B&E robbery of the Main Street Grocery in Newton Friday, all while wearing a Snuggie over his hoodie, like you do. Apparently, the Snuggie doesn't make it all that easy to run from police.

Follow me down to central booking to learn more...

According to reports, Mr. Ryzner-Meredith was with friends who had helped him cut a screen on a door and pried it open at the Newton General Store (Sam Drucker could not be reached for comment), when an alert citizen called Newton police to alert them. Ryzner-Meredith was the only one who had not run away far enough from police to be caught.

Ryzner-Meredith was charged with attempted burglary, a third-degree offense, and criminal mischief and possession of burglary tools, both disorderly persons offenses, felony use of a Snuggie in the commission of a crime, and just in general being dressed like a jackass.

Ready, steady, snark away

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
